In today’s video, Stefanie Antunes and Jennifer Rogers review their favourite techniques with the all mighty rebozo. The rebozo is a fan favourite of most doulas and childbirth educators.

According to Wikipedia (I know, I know) the origin of the garment is unclear, but most likely derived in the early colonial period, as traditional versions of the garment show indigenous, European and Asian influences.
